sorry q. again launches a strike on the syrian territory in retaliation for a new mortar shell crossing the border but thousands in turkish cities protest the government's approval of military action. and in syria rebels threaten to axe a cute forty eight year runyan hostages within two days if the outside of government does not comply with their demands and release captured opposition pointed. thousands of islam has called for a change in the jordanian capital amman that's part of a massive rally that threatens to shuttle the solid want to keep. and just days before when as well as for is a presidential elections in six years we're going to where the longtime socialist
leader who is charged as a still enjoys popular support and who could for tickets to. that's eleven o'clock here in moscow you live with r. and t. and me to bang with say we start with breaking news at this hour wild turkey has reportedly again launch an attack on syrian territory in response to new mortar shells being fired across the border it comes just a day off of the turkish parliament approved to cross border military action after an early a shell from inside syria killed five people but former pentagon official michael maloof was they could all be any liberate to set up. you've got opposition forces there are there and they are desperate they are low on ammunition.
and i think they would love to have turkey get into the get into the fight they're moving they've moved their headquarters from turkey into to syria and that's going to set up a logistical problem for them in coordination with forces inside of turkey to bring in more ammunition and and logistics to back them up but it would be an easier way then to set up a situation where where you bring turkey into the into the fight and in order to provide that kind of a sense of. i don't rule that out. and that's all for some work in the in that in that region there they're very very good at this kind of set up. meanwhile turkey has seen thousands marching in photo is that what they say is the government to escalate tension against syria but there are a series peaceful demonstration in the capital turned violent when one please move
to disperse the crowds tear gas water cannon and smoke grenades were used to break the ranks of activists unhappy with the current policies up to his ruling party protesters also left out of the international media saying the u.s. and its western allies are forcing. meanwhile in syria the free syrian army says in two days they could start executing forty eight iranian pilgrims they kidnapped in august the thread you would be carried out of the syrian regime does not fulfill demands through these rebel fighters and stop shelling john laughland over in the paris base is situated off democracy and corporation says this should alert of the world to the nature of the rebels fight in syria. i think it does underline the nature of at least some elements within the syrian rebels who of course are presented in most of the western media as freedom fighters if they were to carry out their threat to execute the hostages and i think people would
understand that we are dealing with a very vicious insurgency and one which any state would be intitled and indeed obliged to try to put down. this is the first time that they have done things like this the reports in the western media going back months telling how the syrian rebels would slit the throats of the syrian army soldiers that they captured so it's something they've done before basically against their own nationals. preserve more and that is you of syria turkish attentions as well as a timeline of events and analysis that out to dot com there you can also find out more on the ripple effect of the on running syrian crisis ascending to its neighboring state. thousands of islamist opposition supporters have been protesting in jordanian capital amman to demand reform this is why the king having already dissolved the parliament the rally was organized by the jordanian awaiting
the muslim brotherhood policy a report from amman. thousands of people are gathering here in the jordanian capital of a man where the muslim brotherhood is organize a demonstration and at the time the friday of this country's salvation now people have had a very strong demands and a lot of criticism against the jordanian government they're calling for constitutional reforms to be implemented they're calling for a fair electoral law they want to see all political prisoners released and at the same time they're also saying that government needs to root out corruption now this is a process that has attracted not only brotherhood supporters there are people here from all political factions the police is on high guard all the roads leading here have been closed since the during the hours of friday morning. the king is well aware of the mood on the streets and that is why he is calling for early elections at the end of this year but the brotherhood has already said that it plans to boycott those elections the arab spring which began back in january last year has largely bypassed the kingdom this is seen as
a relatively stable country in an extremely unstable region the question now though is just what is going to be the extent of the influence of the brotherhood beyond egypt and other countries where it has already come to the fore so if you look around here on the streets of amman judging by the mood and judging by the turnout of the brotherhood it does seem as if the brotherhood support is in for the long haul we are likely to see more demonstrations like this in the jordanian capital policy r.t. amman jordan. volunteer is keeping her up to date on the rallies in jordan twenty four seventh's logon to have twitter feed to find the pictures of the latest scenes of the protests hit capital on monday. in tunisia up to eighty seven people linked to attacks on the u.s. embassy in september may face the death penalty this is according to their lawyers charges against them include attacks against a security they were part of
a protest over an american made phil mocking prophet mohammad did turn violent when thousand strong the embassy building and clash with wired please let's discuss those with lawrence freeman director of the african dad executive intelligence review magazine who joins us from washington good to see you this now as a free man storming an embassy over a film can hardly be justified but still is the death penalty a proportionate punishment. no it's not and i don't support capital punishment however this whole operation there we've seen in north africa and the middle east over this film i think people have to look at this thing from a higher level view the few minutes of the film it's a very ridiculous silly i would call mickey mouse production so why the uproar well obviously some people and i think we have to look to some of the salafist jihadist networks are using this film to carry out provocations and then you see counter
provocations and there is no reason for uprising over this film it's a silly stupid film put there but it therefore has a higher political purpose and we see that these kind of demonstrations provoked i believe deliberately and then organized groups this does not represent the entire muslim community this represents a very small group of people who i believe are being deployed precisely to create this kind of chaos and encounter attacks. now this sort of punishment in a hospital and how does that correlate with the country perceiving democracy that explained after allison ben ali from power. it doesn't look the the tunisians were the first ones to begin this reform process back in the early part of last year and you had a lot of people who wanted a better life wanted economic upward mobility and they wanted
a better government to carry that out and may lead to a process which we saw in various fits and starts throughout the arab and what african world and this is this was legitimate now how are we getting the kind of economic development for the the people who need a more stand a higher standard of living and of course as you bring up is this really the way you want to deal with an emerging. reformist government is trying to help and provide for its people it's not and that's why i'm saying that these demonstrations are provoking me bring out the worst of the political decision making process of the government instead of really thinking about what do we need to do to help our people and that means economic progress and development now separately the tunisian government extended for an eighth time the state of emergency put in place when the arab spring uprising took hold of the country despite a sign notable improvement in security how significant is that progress really.
well is that i think the point that ever i think we should look at is the real progress is going to be measured by how do we provide how these governments work for there. is a standard of living increase in. young families have a greater opportunity for higher paying doctors employment and what you're seeing is that this is not really taking place i mean the i.m.f. and the world bank of moving in we see it again in. the transatlantic countries in europe are completely collapsing and disintegrating united states economy is horrible we have two very competent inadequate candidates for president so there's no leadership in the world that's really driving the policy for economic development and that's really what the tunisian people wanted when they started this they want a change in government but a change in government for what
a change of government for the benefit of the standard of living and the mobility of people to achieve a higher level of economic condition for themselves their family and the children. we'll leave it right there thank you for your time mr lawrence freemen director of the african desk at the executive intelligence review magazine live from washington . the angles protesters in tunisia may have grabbed attention but the troubles in other arab countries are left in the background in both brain demonstrations again and media with an angry and violent police response on the crowded streets of the capital of my mom more on this unreported struggle of lives in the next few minutes. the stunning beauty of reindeer gracefully dancing across the arctic tundra more
than just a scenic image it is a way of life for sun traditionally the new. people. there are also highly skilled and organized. another week. depending on. the day we found this particular camp they were settled near the coast of the ta to see here for families work together to manage nearly a thousand reindeer herding reindeer is not just a job. and way of life. but they can use almost every single part of the reindeer to help them survive. a deer is a means of transportation. but life in the tundra is harsh and so before winter hits many of the children are
helicoptered to the center of the district for boarding school. students learn different languages utilize modern technologies through specialized grant programs and even learn arts skills all within a protected the school was founded. a scientist who wanted a better way of life for his people but even with the most progressive ideas and education say they don't want to trade the modern life. i have returned to the time and i actually like it here if you're outside there's fresh air fresh water looks at the site you can see deer it's a joyful sight. a sentiment that hopefully ensures that russia's northern reindeer will have caretakers for generations to come. wealthy british style.
you're watching are too good to have you with us now police in bahrain use water cannon and tear gas to disperse hundreds of pro-democracy protesters in the capital manama but clashes took place after a memorial for young activists who died in prison after allegedly being denied adequate medical treatment protests take place almost daily in bahrain despite the government's crackdown on demonstrators for more on the story i'm joined by former m.p.'s. we could took part in today's rally good to see there mr morsi. the death of the twenty three year old prisoner happened just days after a teenage boy was reportedly shot dead by a bus trainee security forces now these cases would usually draw
a chorus of condemnation from western governments but there's no reaction why. your question is putting the actual problem that we had here in bahrain on the on the send in the beginning of the let's say media. trying to fix the problem that the devil is done which in practice by all those who simply on trees. that they do can say i'm on those regimes who have some. let's say week relationship with them or probably they consider them as enemies but like our regime it's a part of the system they have lots of relationships they give them some let's say support. as. weapons they take some friends facilities they have the only from out of countries that survive they ignore the old what's
happening here although it's not listen what's happening somewhere else now activists say over eighty people have died in behind since the beginning of this uprising was a wave of racially ignoring what's going on day why isn't it calling for the government to step down as it does else way. to be owners frankly we can say they did not tell the government to step down they may say that to them either publicly or privately in the closing room but there is no actual let's say strong actives there is no way both can be put on the rejean shoulders they just say this. gets rid of any blame from any other to. for example protect themselves not to be conned that you don't blame
this regime this there are some saying these words they may advise ing them to. let's say. no to violate human rights but they are not serious like what's happened in syria for example like course happened in libya they don't do this we don't know why but this is again bringing us to the double standard this is bringing us to conflict of interest sometimes speaking of human rights now despite the continued violence in bahrain the countries ministry for social development want to seat at the un human rights council advisory committee now is that appropriate given that the flagrant human rights abuses that have happened they are. the problem this is another story because all those countries. not voted there is no voting happened just they did not bring their candidate and they kept the position for
one candidate always from bahrain mr honey is not. known as a human right activist or human right with say. he's just a part of the regime and he was a member of the brain human rights establishment which is being formed or founded by the king himself he did not even. single of what's happened in bahrain since the put him in that position so this. issue and countries like reason with each other or this person on that position what we we can say this position doesn't mean anything for bahrain but also what i mean for them is to respect our actually human rights on the basis every day on every step not by getting charity out of there let's leave it right there thank you very much for
your thoughts our form of a rainy m.p. sayyid had a loss that we for talking to us. then bitterly for campaign venezuela hold its first presidential election in six years on sunday and both candidates incumbent godchild lessen his rival and break up palace meet the voice of the last day on the campaign trail on his receipt confidant i look said was at the stake during this election. there's no question who these venezuelans will be voting for comet over seven and we are here because we support our president chavez he does many things to help us housing education programs helping the poor everything here has gotten a lot better big. because of him everything has changed was there red shirts brand them as the lifeblood of the venezuelan president's leftist movements throughout his fourteen years a power for the hundreds of thousands of supporters who gathered in caucus on
thursday the message was clear they want six more years of al comment on they was his supporters say that chavez is the country's first president to genuinely care about the lower class so it was a chavez is the punishment of the rich and the window of hope to. get. under the banner of socialism for the twenty first century chavez has pumped hundreds of billions of petro dollars into the economy and government run aid programs along with earning him popular support poverty has fallen from fifty percent in one thousand nine hundred nine to around thirty percent last year yet life in this country is far from ideal and with the plague of unemployment crime and corruption many venezuelans are now saying it's time for chavez to go but it looks like i don't want to be for chavez but he's done his best and we need a change. in this race change means a vote for opposition leader in the us a forty year old lawyer who unlike chavez enjoyed a privileged upbringing. the son of a wealthy family that controls
a media conglomerate and a chain of movie theaters. supporters by promising to combat crime unemployment and corruption but opponents have charged a previous is deliberately hiding his real economic goals the candidates are. the secret work that chavez is a man of he is come from this kind of work and now works hard to change that and the other candidate for your feelings is a man of the wealthy or the elite or oligarchy who would implement privatization we are. here right now is austerity and it's a choice between two radically different worldviews a referendum on venezuela's so. experiment. in just the way of. the captain of our team. here is media coverage of venezuela's presidential campaign has been
criticized as one sided against child with author and analyst bill flashers says that chavez has always been a negative hero for washington because he poses an ideological threat to the us it is because president child is from the very beginning has been asserting the sovereignty of venezuela the desire to change the economic rules and this runs counter to the economic philosophy that comes are the united states so no matter what chavez has done at different points he ends up being more blamed as some sort of demon and we can remember this in a coup of two thousand and two for us was quick to recognize the coup people and quick to denounce charges venezuela could be an example for other countries i mean here you have a country that is seeing that neo liberal economics is failing the planet that the
polarization of wealth which we see not just in one country not just in two countries but globally is completely toxic it must be addressed and that there must be a redistribution of wealth the companies cannot run roughshod over the rest of the planet i mean this is antithetical to what's been known as the washington consensus so in that sense the receive the president chavez. as a threat. time now for the business news with it dimitri so the u.s. labor department has reported a fantastic job in i'll employment that's that's absolutely right actually are too good to be true drop in unemployment the unemployment rate has come down to seven. point eight percent for the first time since january two thousand and nine when barack obama took office now also we know that the. d. sector added around fourteen thousand jobs last month slightly more than the
market's expected and some analysts remain skeptical about this reform that comes in right at the peak of the election campaign let's take a look at the market reaction to this report in the the u.s. it was a positive at first but now it's all come down to almost ground zero for the market and the nasdaq is even down point four percent with zingo dropping sixty percent. over in europe however the markets closed to several hours ago and therefore they remain on a positive note with the dax up one point three percent and the russian we've also had a very positive day final day of the week after three days of losses russia gains of within two percent was a last minute selling and that's all i can tell you this of course we will be back next week monday morning. well enjoy your weekend dimitri thank you for this last updated will see see. right in just a few minutes crossed all go there is then on the first debate between romney and obama obama being assessed massively underwhelming.
